  1. Thought to mention, PowerView, BISM are the prominent ones in the MS BI side of SQL Server 2012. Have a question.
    Even after RTM version release, why do we have evaluation edition when Developer edition of SQL Server 2012 is given for free and what would it take to upgrade from evaluation version to RTM at later point of time. Please help me understand better.
